The Tear Boo\ 



of the 



BOSTON 
ARCHITECTURAL 

CLUB 



Containing 
Examples of Modern Architecture 




BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

1929 



THE BOSTON ARCHITECTURAL CLUB 
was organized in 1889 for the purpose of 
associating those interested in the profession of 
architecture, with a view to mutual encouragement and 
help in studies. It owns a building in which all its edu- 
cational and social activities take place. 

The classes of the Boston Architectural Club are 
only open to members. Others are admitted temporarily 
who make application for membership in the Club, 
pending action by the Board of Directors. A limited 
number of outsiders are admitted under special conditions 
to the Historv class. 



Outline of Studies 



Preliminary Design, Mathematics, Short Problems 
in Design, Preliminary Construction, Advanced Design, 
Cast Drawing, History, Drawing from Life and Advanced 
Construction.

FOREWORD 



THE modern building, much more than its prede- 
cessors, is in its function very machine like. 
It materially aids in the efficient performance 
of physical needs and usages. The great problem 
of the architect lies not in that solution however, which is 
relatively easy, because of practice, nearly as much as it 
does in developing a philosophy and in introducing a 
humanizing element that will aid in the attainment of a 
like mental comfort and efficiencv. 

The present difference between the contemporary work 
here and that abroad is in our growing understanding 
of that viewpoint, for we are beginning to differentiate 
between the proper philosophy that deals with a building 
such as a grain elevator for example and that which deals 
with one for human occupancy. One evidently has but 
one problem — the physical or the machine — while the 
other has both a physical and a mental problem to be 
solved. 

Our architecture does not ascribe to definite materials, 
such as concrete and plate glass, the important position 
that Oud and Gropius and LeCorbusier do in the develop- 
ment of a new art, and this is probably because we have 
not been forced to stringent economies and also because 
we very definitely feel that we are in an experimental 
stage in which no rigid formula is applicable. 

Therefore, we have not developed any of the definite 
schools that are found abroad ; the work of the separate 
architects has been, as it should be, a more individual 
and personal solution of an immediate problem. 

The editors wish to express their appreciation of the 
help given them by the Architects and the "Architectural 
Forum" in assembling the material which was used in this 
book. They have not presumed to select the best in 
modern architecture but rather a representative collec- 
tion showing the general character of what is being 
done over the country.

most modern — and exacting — heating and ventilating 
achievements. 369,000 cubic feet of outdoor air, properly 
tempered, supplied every minute; 

. . . The New York Life Building where one million 
cubic feet of air is supplied every minute to an army of

every minute — unfailingly ! 

It is significant that Sturtevant equipment was the choice 



of the Architects and Engineers for all of these striking 
examples of American consrrucrional genius . . . But the 
reason that the name "Sturtevant" is linked with these 
great enterprises is because of the superior operating 
characteristics of Sturtevant ventilating equipment!

HERE is presented a Crane ides for bache- 
lor apartments and residence hotels ... a 
bedroom-bath. By placing the Elegia lavatory in 
the bedroom, the Tarnid tub in a wall nook with 
folding panels, the Saneto toilet in a small en- 
closure, space is saved. And the well-designed 
sage green fixtures become a part of the furnish- 
ings and decorations. With ample closet space, 
the only furniture needed is a bed, a chair, and 



a bedside table. With an adjoining living room 
a two-room suite is created of great beauty and 
economy. Many owners of hotels and apart- 
ments will be interested in such an arrangement. 
Architects, building hotels, apartments, homes, 
or business buildings, find it helpful to keep 
informed of the steady stream of Crane plumb- 
ing ideas. Write for the new book of rooms in 
color, Bathrooms for Ont-of-the-Ordinary Homes.

"TE DEUM WINDOW" 
ALL SAINTS' CHURCH, PETERBOROUGH, NEW HAMPSHIRE 



Akin to the noble glass of the Middle 
Ages, but without archaeological flavor. 
This window lives in its relationship to 
present ideals. The medallions carrying 
through the two lancets may be said to 
represent outstanding verses in the famous 
Hymn of Praise. It is dedicated in thanks- 
giving for the safe return of men from the 
Great War.

An unusual feature of this 
bank is the use of the con- 
cealed reflectors in the top of 
the check desks fixtures for 
the general illumination 
of the banking room. The 
architectural beauty of the 
room is revealed to its fullest 
extent when artificial illu- 
mination is used by means of 
these specially designed, 
chromium plated, concealed 
reflectors. The lighting for 
the tellers' counters is pro- 
vided by continuous chro- 
mium plated reflectors 
mounted under the upper 
shelf of the counter.

Assuring Clients 
of long-term valve-service 

In order to make plumbing and heating contracts substitu- 
tion proof, it is worth the architects' while to make in- 
structions specific. 

By making mention of the Jenkins "Diamond" mark, an 
architect can assure his clients of long time valve service- 
Jenkins Valves are furnished for practically every plumb- 
ing, heating, power plant and fire protection requirement.

How architects may use a simple problem to their advan- 
tage and profit. 

The Problem 

Why does this funnel overflow? 

The Answer- 

There is more water flowing in at the top than can possibly flow out 
through the narrow neck of the funnel at the bottom. 

There is only one way that architects can overcome the competition of the over-rated boiler. 
That way is to make boiler prospects appreciate the difference in efficiency and cost of opera- 
tion between a Fairly Rated Boiler having sufficient Fire Surface and an over-rated boiler 
which hasn't enough Fire Surface. This is a difficult thing to do but we have found a way 
to do it verv effectively in our magazine and newspaper advertising. Architects can use 
the same method to their advantage and profit. The way we are doing it in our national 
advertising is by means of the simple illustration given above. 

Turning on more water will get practically no more into the bottle. Because only so much 
and no more water can pass through the neck of the funnel. 

So with a boiler. The Fire Surface corresponds to the neck of the funnel. The heat given 
off by the fuel burned corresponds to the water. When there is insufficient Fire Surface heat 
"overflows'' and is wasted up the chimney. Generating more heat by forcing the fire only 
means greater waste up the chimney. Because the Fire Surface, like the neck of the funnel, 
can absorb only so much heat and pass it into the home. 

By means of this simple illustration it is very easy for the layman to visualize the fuel he will waste if he has an inefficient boiler. 

It is easy for him to see why, when an extra cold snap occurs, forcing an over-rated boiler will waste more fuel but give him 

very little, if any more, heat.

Most clients expect 

Frigid aire 



So it should be included inyour plans for 
homes and apartments 



Architects consider automatic refrigeration 
as a modern household necessity. And 
when they specifv refrigeration of any 
kind, it's usually Frigidaire . . . not alone 
because it is dependable, care-free and 
economical, but also because the majority 
of clients expect to have Frigidaire. 

So you should include Frigidaire in vour 
plans for homes and apartments, large 
and small. Frigidaire simplifies planning 
and cuts building costs by doing away 
with all provisions for outside ice supplv. 
It offers a wide range of models with ex- 
treme flexibility of design. It meets anv 
requirement as to size, available space and 
type of installation desired. 



You can install Frigidaire as a built-in 
feature. The mechanism is in the bottom 
of the cabinet ... or it can be put in the 
basement. It's out of the way in either 
case. And the apartment multiple in- 
stallation, as well as the single unit, is 
entirely practical. Special Frigidaire cabi- 
nets are designed for both methods. 

We'd like to tell you more about the 
latest Frigidaire equipment. We'd like to 
give you prices, estimates and technical 
data specially prepared for architects. 

This information is furnished without 
cost or obligation. Write or telephone for

A PLEDGE 

AND AN 

ACHIEVEMENT 

Upon the architects, the builders and the homeowners of 
America depends the fate of the nation. For the life of a 
nation depends upon its standards of health and living comfort; 
and it is the privilege and duty of the builders of homes to 
make and keep these standards high. 

At the birth of 192.8 the American Radiator Company 
pledged itself to a great educational campaign— a campaign to 
enlighten homeowners on the vital relation between proper heat- 
ing and health; and to bring its products—the world's finest heat- 
ing equipment — within reach of every family. 

That goal has been attained. Today, with the introduction 
of the new Arcoflash Heating Unit, the humblest cottage can 
enjoy the most efficient, healthful and economical warmth known 
to Science. Research has proved radiator heat to be all of these 
things; while mass production and scientific methods have made 
steam and hot-water warmth possible for every home throughout 
the land.
